does this method work on hard coated / anodised pipes

i would like to try it but i dont want to find that the hard coating goes missing. because that will also change the way the pipe resonates

FYI, Just to clarify for all the "Don't let the wife catch ya" remarks, once a crockpot has antifreeze in it, DO NOT use it for food. Drinking antifreeze will kill ya and even remanants in food can tumble your stomache pretty good.

True!!! My understanding is your liver dies then you. NEVER REUSE THE CROCKPOT FOR ANYTHING THAT WILL BE CONSUMED BY SOMETHING LIVING!!!!!!

I just tried it recently with anodized pipes and it did not damage the finish. It worked great.

So it sounds like you should buy a cheap crock pot, some antifreeze, and let it rip all day in the garage or on the back patio. Ahhh crap, I've got like 10 pipes to do... ugggg!

On coated pipes, I have actually used a dremel with a wire wheel. It didn't seem to hurt the finish and the pipe looked new when I was done. That was how I did it before I found the antifreeze method, and it didn't get the inside clean.


Brandon did you kill my cat?

I just watched a program about WWII airplane restoration and came across something worth trying. The guy performing the resto took a metal part with 50+ years of corrosion (plane was sitting in an island jungle) and soaked it in a 5% vinegar solution and the thing looked new. This was a steel part. Anybody have any thoughts?

There shouldnt be anything but oil in your pipe.... Ron paris years ago wouldnt tune an engine unless the pipe had built up oil in it... not sure why but there must have been a reason. he had sent that was already broken in but the pipe was new and he said to idle it for a couple tanks and then start tuning it, after the pipe had oil in it.

Anyway, nitro spray take the oil out in a jiffy, probably wont touch the carbon in the header though
